It's the second day of back to in-person learning and already there has been a confirmed COVID-19 case in one of Waterloo Region's schools.

The Catholic school board is reporting a student case at St. Brigid Elementary School in Ayr.

The school is working with public health to prevent further spread in students, staff and the community.

Local school boards publicly report COVID cases on their websites for transparency purposes.

Specifics are not released due to privacy concerns. 

A statement from a spokesperson with the Waterloo Catholic District School Board said, "It is a privacy matter and the school board's protection of privacy responsibilities are not within our purview to change."
